You need to build your presentable reputation.
Generally, the better your presentable reputation, the better your pay. This is because the payer will have more evidence that you'll do a good job, so they'll be willing to pay more for higher quality work, and they'll be taking less of a risk by hiring you.
I use the word "presentable" reputation because it's important to remember that the ability to show someone your reputation (i.e. transfer it from the end of one job to the start of the next) is the most important part in building a reputation over time, allowing you to earn more and more.
A presentable reputation can take many forms, including the following:
1) a college degree
2) professional experience
3) a verbal or written recommendation from a friend
4) online reviews of you or your product (e.g. Yelp, Amazon, Ebay, etc.)
5) media coverage
6) a book you write
All of those take time to get, but some can be faster and easier to get than others.
Luckily, if you're a good, hard working, and smart person, you most likely already have option #3, since you've been alive for a while and have probably made some friends. So start with that. Reach out to all of your friends and acquaintances and tell them that you're looking for a job and give them a list of what you'd be interested in, and the related skills you possess.
Any job you get from those referrals will most likely be better paid than any job you'd get by not using those referrals, since the referrals are allowing you to transfer the positive reputation you've built up over the years to the new job.
Go from there. It will take time, but you'll have to start building a better presentable reputation, and by starting with the foundation of your existing reputation you'll start as well off as currently possible.
The ability to use internet platforms (like Youtube, Amazon, Yelp, etc.) as places to get, save, and display reputation permanently, and in an easy to discover manner, is what allows "nobody's" to become millionaires. For instance Amazon sellers start with 0 stars, but once they get a couple purchases and ratings, if those ratings are good, the encourage more people to buy, and it turns into a domino effect where more people buy and more good ratings come in. This takes time too though, so be aware of that if you decide to go that route.
